Jiggin'

5 posts in this topic

Well this is the time of year where many anglers favorite approach of jig and minnow combo fishing really works well. My clients and I have been doing well jigging and it is about as much fun as you can have. I have great success with fatheads plus they don’t cost an arm and leg and are readily available. Fish in 15 to 30 feet, walleyes run shallower than saugers. We’ve been fishing a lot of the river and covering ground going well south of the Kinni and to the Bayport area with points in between.

Keep Catchin’

I've found that lighter line gives you the ability to use a lighter jig head and increases sensativity, I use 4lb on my favorite jig rod, seems to be work just fine. Fall fishing is no doubt the best, keep jigging! grin.gif

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
